    Speculation over Rice's future has GOP abuzz BY HELEN KENNEDY New York Daily News WASHINGTON - (KRT) - President Condi? Political speculation starts earlier and earlier these days, but it's particularly strong now as President Bush starts his second term without the usual clear successor. Condoleezza Rice - one of Bush's most trusted advisers and now as newly minted secretary of state, arguably the most powerful woman in the world - is setting GOP hearts aflutter in the wake of her boffo first foreign trip. Already, many are starting to dream of a Condi Rice-Hillary Clinton smackdown in `08. "That's...

    Admirers have called her one of the country's best and brightest and the President's secret weapon. At a June 4 meeting with Jordanian, Palestinian Authority, and Israeli leaders, President Bush called her "my personal representative" and said she would work closely with the parties to help bring about peace. Her significance in shaping American foreign policy is hard to overstate.

    President Bush's national security adviser said on Thursday that the Clinton and other past administrations had ignored evidence of growing terrorist threats and that despite repeated attacks on American interests, "until Sept. 11, the terrorists faced no sustained, systematic and global response" from the United States. "They became emboldened," the adviser, Condoleezza Rice, said of Al Qaeda, "and the result was more terror and more victims." With these comments, in a speech in New York on Thursday evening to the National Legal Center for the Public Interest, Ms. Rice waded into what has become a central theme of the early...

    Bush Labels Aide Rice the 'Unsticker' WASHINGTON - President Bush gave his national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, a new job description Tuesday: the White House's "unsticker." The White House recently set up, under Rice, a new National Security Council oversight group over Iraq. The move prompted speculation that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld had been sidelined, despite the Pentagon's continuing authority over the U.S. mission in Iraq. It also led to much talk of how Rice, one of Bush's most powerful and trusted advisers, performs her job. Bush was asked what changed with the creation of Rice's new group. He did...

The "United Cards of America", Russia's answer to the US military's "Iraqi most-wanted" playing cards, features a 36-card round-up of key figures in Washington. From George Bush ("USA President since 2001, convinced that God has a plan for him") to the Federal Reserve chairman, Alan Greenspan ("second-most powerful man in the world"), and Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld ("the face of struggle with terrorism"), the cards are an attempt to teach Russians that what happens on the Volga is increasingly determined...

    An upcoming TV docudrama chronicling President Bush's actions in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks blames President Clinton's "weakness" for leaving America vulnerable to the disaster. Titled "DC/9/11: A Time of Crisis" and set for broadcast Sunday night on Showtime, the film "rarely misses a chance to suggest that the Clinton administration's weakness was to blame for the disaster," reported the New York Times on Friday.

At the same time, many critics make the argument that it’s the Democrats who are the biggest hypocrites on race. Yet Republicans often fail to fight back when they are falsely portrayed as racists.

Unfortunately, the answer is a clear and resounding no. There is no mystery to voluntary disarmament. Countries that decide to disarm lead inspectors to weapons and production sites, answer questions before they are asked, state publicly and often the intention to disarm and urge their citizens to...

Rice’s aides call her the “anti-Kissinger,” meaning that she does not need to show off her influence or present herself as a master global strategist like Henry Kissinger. That may be in part because Rice is not a strategic genius, but no one doubts her power. Rice’s aides also refer to her (affectionately) as the “Warrior Princess.” She is proud, elegant, fastidious about her appearance (she keeps two mirrors in her office, so she can see her back as well as her front) and utterly unflappable....

    It's the ultimate inside-the-Beltway fantasy, a political tease too titillating to surrender, because it ends with the prospect of two women running against one another for president of the United States in 2008. [snip] Scenario One: Democrats rally around Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) as their presidential candidate in 2008, after she is reelected in a roar from New York in 2006. President Bush attempts to preempt Hillary's expected star-power run with a trump card of his own, naming national security advisor Condoleezza Rice as his vice presidential running mate in 2004. Bush-Rice triumphs at the polls, making Rice the first...

    When I was 16 - an overworked and harried high school senior trying to graduate and get on to college - she was 10. I remember her as the proper, well-behaved daughter of a popular local minister - a light- brown-skinned girl with button teeth, in the Birmingham, Ala., of the mid -'60s. Her childhood was similar to mine: She excelled in school, skipped several grades, attended church and Sunday school, took piano and dance lessons, was always asked to perform when relatives and friends came to visit, and strove to please her parents. Like mine, her parents did what...

    A lesson from Condoleezza Rice By Derrick Z. Jackson, 11/20/2002 WASHINGTONCONDOLEEZZA RICE was reminded of her decision to become a Republican after the 1984 Democratic National Convention. She said the Democratic Party's speeches to ''women, minorities, and the poor'' really meant ''helpless people and the poor.'' In a profile in The Washington Post, Rice said, ''I decided I'd rather be ignored than patronized.'' The national security adviser to President Bush was asked if she thinks the Democratic Party still patronizes ''women, minorities, and the poor.'' Laughing, she declined to answer the specific question last week before the Trotter Group, an...

    THE FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT: HILLARY OR CONDI? Fri Oct 25,10:02 PM ET By Richard Reeves PARIS -- Hillary Clinton turns 55 years old on Saturday. Condoleezza Rice turns 48 next month. So they will be 61 and 53, respectively, when they run against each other for president in 2008. If they run for president. I think they will. Three things are necessary to make a run: celebrity, which used to be called "name recognition"; money; and narrative, by which I mean a story to tell. There are other things that help, of course, desire and iron discipline among them. But...

    <p>Who would have predicted in 1954, the year of the Supreme Court's landmark Brown vs. Board of Education decision, that in less than half a century two distinguished black Americans (and one of them a woman at that) would be sharing foreign policy decision-making with the president of the United States? Perhaps Martin Luther King might have included such a prophecy in his "I Have a Dream" oration.</p>

    Condoleezza Rice will defeat Hillary Clinton for the presidency in 2008, New York Times political columnist William Safire predicted during a stop in Ypsilanti Monday. Safire was the featured speaker at an annual fund-raiser of the Jewish Federation of Washtenaw County at the Ypsilanti Marriott Hotel. Asked if he, a political columnist, misses Bill Clinton in the White House, Safire answered: "Desperately." "He enlivened my life," said Safire, who awaits the day Hillary Clinton stops being a quiet, respectful freshman senator. He then predicted she will run for president in 2008, but will be defeated by Rice, who is now...

    Black Republicans becoming a force to be reckoned with in Florida The Saturday before Tuesday's election, a revealing event took place. A trolley filled with black Republicans rolled through the streets of Newtown. You read that right. Black Republicans in Newtown. It was a portent of the sleeper story of last week's surprise election results: The rise of the black Republican voter. The mayor of Sarasota, Carolyn Mason, is a black Republican. The black-owned Tempo News in Sarasota endorsed Republican Jeb Bush for governor. So did the black Broward Times of Fort Lauderdale and The Weekly Challenger of St. Petersburg....

    The tawdry campaign against African-Americans in the Bush White House is set to turn uglier in the coming weeks with the release of a new music CD featuring a cover photograph of President Bush greeting National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice with a social kiss - and a track inside titled, "Kiss a N-----r Good Morning." "Kiss a N----r Good Morning" is performed by "Boca Brian," a South Florida singer whose parodies are regular features on The Neil Rogers Radio Show, heard weekdays on stations in Miami Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Ft. Myers. Mr. Rogers, who is white, has a Web...

    On "Late Edition" with Wolf Blitzer, our National Security Advisor Condi Rice was giving an excellent interview, explaining why it was North Korea who complicated the situation concerning nuclear weapons, not the U.S. (all of the pieces fell into place BEFORE Bush's "Axis of Evil" speech). At the end of the interview, Wolf asked her about Harry Bellafonte's comments on Powell and herself, and played the clip from Larry King Live. Her resonse: "I don't need Harry Belafonte telling me what it means to be black."

    An unrepentant Harry Belafonte continued his attack Tuesday night on blacks in the Bush administration, telling CNN's "Larry King Live" that National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice was a bigger sellout than Secretary of State Colin Powell. Asked if he thought Rice deserved the same criticism as Powell, whom Belafonte compared to a "slave" last week who lived "in the house," the washed-up calypso singer bellyached, "Yes. Absolutely. Absolutely. Even more so." "Because I've never heard from Condoleezza Rice even the suggestion towards some of the more lenient thoughts or some of the more appropriate thoughts that Colin Powell has expressed,"...
